Indiana’s governor signs bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence signed into law on Thursday a measure that allows businesses to turn away gay and lesbian customers in the name of “religious freedom.”

The bill has sparked an uproar among gamers and church groups that hold their conventions in Indianapolis and businesses that are threatening to pull out of the city.

Even the NCAA — which is less than two weeks from hosting its men’s basketball Final Four in Indianapolis — was critical, saying the organization is “committed to an inclusive environment where all individuals enjoy equal access to events” as it hinted the bill could damage the city’s reputation as a host of major sporting events.

Even Left-Wing Gawker Finds Jade Helm Exercise “Unsettling” - Media characterizes concern about military drill as "right-wing paranoia" - ( )

THE GAWKER ARTICLE - (Gawker is left wing?) - Jade Helm: The Pretend Invasion of Texas That's Driving the Web Crazy

From July 15th to September 15th, over a thousand armed American soldiers will maneuver through the Southwest United States as part of a vast operation with a single motto: "Master the Human Domain." Internet conspiracy theorists wait their whole lives for a moment this rich.

"JADE HELM 15" is a real military exercise cooked up by the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). It's also, if you ask a certain cohort of internet dweller who thinks each day will be the one when Barack Obama personally carries away his guns, the first phase of martial law in America. When I was first forwarded this slideshow—apparently a preliminary briefing on Jade Helm marked marked "For Official Use Only"—the conspiracy theorists were the only ones talking about the exercise.

every body wants to ruin the world

I am always concerned and pondering and writing about how painfully absurd the world is. Right? You know it's true. I am constantly writing about the insanity of war - e.g. - so-called ISIS in Syria. Yes?

I spend so much time on this, because I know it is bald-faced wrong. Because I know that people are being hurt. Because it is wasteful and ruinous of economies. I know it is helpful to bastards who want to control the planet. And so on. My heart is in the right place. In a safe-deposit box in the Cook Islands.

This evening, there was a report on PRI/ BBC's, "THE WORLD", about jailed people in the Syrian war. ( ).

It switched to a quick audio of (former) convicts, singing a song, dear to my heart: IT'S A MAD WORLD - by TEARS FOR FEARS, (album, same name - ). Their voices were meek and foreign, and racked by pain and defeat. This brought it home to me.

The real me, the feelings, the wishes, the sadness, the dreams, the humanity here and now - this is so often put on hold by thinking and writing - AND BY CFS! Not to mention the wine. I am struggling to research and post about topics of injustice, and here are these sad little men singing a song, way over in Syria, that my SELF relates to and feels.




The World.

This song and album was really introduced to me by an LJ friend, in my own city. (I was already appreciative of other Tears for Fears). We once went to a movie together. Now she is gone because it's a mad world.

How Caffeine Can Hurt Your Potential for Success -

"Caffeine triggers the release of adrenaline – a hormone which triggers a fast response. This fight-or-flight mechanism is great if you’re being chased by a bear, but not so great when you’re responding to a curt email from an angry customer. When adrenaline is released, your brain is put into a hyper-aroused state, causing you to circumvent rational thinking in favour of a fast response."
